Hopefully this one didn't retain the style variations. Though it's NRS so they will most likely have some new gimmick regardless, which is something I both love and hate about them.

I'd also like them to change the input leniency back to how it was in 9. Having to commit to combos ahead of what's on screen is one thing but X's stricter inputs made it feel extra rigid.

Why would they not keep a universally praised addition? Not saying whether I agree or not but the fans and the critics loved them so they'll likely be keeping them.

Maybe even bringing back deceptions version of switching in real-time.

I would not say it was ever a universally praised feature in the community but that's beside the point. It's more that NRS tends to add, remove or alter aspects from game to game(Be it for experimentation or just to change things up), so with that in mind I was merely listing my personal basic wants/hopes.:messenger_winking:

Will Sony censor this game too? Look at all that violence! I mean, this can't be healthy for children, right?
Since ultra extreme violence is involved, I highly doubt it. In fact, it will probably be more violent then ever based on that trailer. Now if the women are showing a little skin, that could be censored, but it’s a popular Western game, so they’ll probably leave it alone most likely.

What I don't get is, why abandon the epic music score from the 1995 movie completely or even the first 3 games and just give it a modern day rework...

Haven´t played Mortal Kombat since Mortal Kombat Trilogy on PSX. Perhaps I should pick this one up and see how far the series has got. It was a boring ass trailer though. And what the fuck was up with that music, it didn´t fit the scene at all. The musical supervisor should consider another field of work.

You're not getting some Metallica ripoff or MK Theme remix in your trailer, get the fuck over it. Jesus, you people are worse than Final Fantasy or Star Wars fans. It's hip-hop mixed with broken bones, violence, and gore. That MK movie was for babies anyway, have you people not grown up?

The music didn't fit for me at all. Like I am extremely perplexed as to how someone thought that was a good song for an MK trailer about these hyper-stylized fantasy characters ripping each other to pieces.

That said, I am stoked for the game and mostly just happy to see it announced.

the issue at hand? lmao. The fact people are calling this 'mumble rap' proves people don't what the fuck they are talking about.
Oh please, if you're gonna try and play the song 'expert' card by clinging onto 21 Savage being trap and totally not mumble rap, you can go take a hike.

Glad you agree the song doesn't fit. Explanation seems to have worked, as you didn't respond to that part.

How the hell am i gonna argue against "soul"? Calling this mumble rap is the equivalent of my mom lumping together CoD, Doom, and Halo.

If they insist on keeping different fighting styles for each character then I hope you can switch between them during the fight rather than having to select one at the start.

I preferred MK9 to Injustice
But I preferred Injustice 2 to MKX (and also preferred MK9 to MKX)

I agree that the music was bad and didn't fit the trailer. Hopefully see some gameplay soon.

Who gives a crap if it’s called mumble rap trap there are like a billion genres nowadays and ever musician has his own.. I mean the issue at hand is not that it’s mumble rap, it is that the song is not fitting. If it was instead the teletubbies intro it would still not match what was shown on screen. I don’t give a shit about the song. You may love it - and that’s fine. I am - and a lot of other people are - only thinking that the song and the trailer don’t match. And that’s our opinion. If you think otherwise - that’s great no one is taking away your opinion. :)
Not sure why you’re nitpicking on the mumble rap part.

MK 11 gets announced and 95% of the posts are about the music, yet i'm the one nitpicking? And you're right, no one is taking my god damn opinion away from me so get used to me saying it.

"You and many people may not think the trailer and music match-and that's fine. I'm just saying they do match, and that's my opinion. If you think otherwise - that’s great no one is taking away your opinion. :)
Not sure why y'all are nitpicking on the mumble rap part though."

But just go watch that fan edit with the movie theme and tell me that still sounds good. The only thing that theme is good for nowadays are parodies and Smosh. And no one is a bigger fan of that movie than I am. NO ONE. Time to move on people. It's sad.

Well if like everyone says that the music sucks it has there has to be something to it? I think for what was shown onscreen that a lot of people loved the trailer - including myself. And if 95% are nipicking, yeah then 95% are nitpicking.

And you are not because it’s not mumble rap but gangsta, trap or whatever it’s called.

And the fan edit - while not perfectly synchronized to the trailer - matches the action on screen way more than the, in my opinion (and other users and most probably people commenting on YouTube as well) - dogshit song - the dev/marketing team chose.

Btw. I still like the song. I did not say the old MK theme is the one they should chose for the trailer but it’s still better than the song they actually used.

Dude the theme track has like 80 million views on youtube. People remember it, people like it. And just for some anecdotal evidence, I heard it played by one of the top german techno DJ's (kobosil) a few weeks ago in Helsinki and everyone went nuts for that shit. It was the highlight of the night and again proves that it is a classic track and it just works. Time to get back to the good old days and forget this nap time rap. Trust me, it'll do ya some good.

Mumble rap or not, it fucking sucks. There's plenty of aggressive rap out there. They should have gone with something like Hedpe's Renegade or Hacktivists Cold Shoulders, not this lullaby crap.

Goro was somewhat lame, so while he was a pre-order bonus it didn't suck nearly as much as now HAVING to pre-order for freaking Shao Khan. Are you serious Netherrealm?

I guess if we dont pre-order we have to pay 5 bucks for a finished on disc character.

Mortal Kombat IX was released on Vita. Nothing outstanding here.
I know. My point was not the hardware capability, but the fact that the last Mortal Kombat I played on a Nintendo platform, was Armageddon on Wii. And since the games after Armageddon were not released for any Nintendo platform, I was not expecting the game to be announced for Switch.

If you are a third party and can easily scale down your game for the Switch, this seems like a logical choice. You should put your game on every console you can since they all have e pretty big install base.

The music choice was laughable for me but I "get" we, the people who hate the song choice, aren't the audience targeted by this trailer.
Anyways, cool trailer. I hope to see some gameplay soon to see if they changed the mediocre animations they always had in these games.
